Another Day, Another Doctor's Appointment

Another day, another doctor's appointment. That's the story of my life right now!

But today came with mostly good news, which was a very welcome change! I guess the good part of having so many appointments/ultrasounds is that you get to see your baby more. I could already fill up an entire scrapbook with just ultrasound pics! Max looked so cute and gave me some good profile and head shots- he's still a little alien looking, but I think he's adorable! And everything seems to be right on track with him.

I'm slowly coming around too. Patty the Placenta (thank you Anne for naming my body parts!) has moved her way up to the top of my uterus, so no more fears of placenta previa/accreta. I do have an umbilical hernia (which is very evident if you've seen me and my belly button that arrives 5 minutes before the rest of me!) that will have to be surgically repaired at the time of my C-section. I also was told to "take it easy" since I have started to have a lot of frequent Braxton Hicks contractions. Yeah, right- tell that to my 3 year old!!!

It's been a really eventful month to watch and feel Max moving around. David can now feel him and (if we're patient) we can spend endless amounts of time watching my belly move as Max gets his groove on in there!

So, here's the good stuff: some pics from today's ultrasound. Max was (as always) very wiggly, but cooperated enough to get some good shots.
